The Human Body is a game designed to teach players about the functions of the body. The player can interact with the different parts of the body, such as the heart, lungs and eyes, and see how they work.
The Human Body by Tinybop teaches players about the various functions of the human body. There are six interactive layers of the body which the player can learn about. The player can click and swipe through the various layers to see different parts of the body. The first layer is the nervous system. The player can click on a mosquito, some flowers, a bee, a pin and a feather and then watch what happens to the body’s nervous system when it interacts with these items. In this layer the player can also view a cross section of the brain, watch how the eye interacts with light, how the nose interacts with smell and how the ear hears sounds.
The second layer is the skeletal system. In this layer the player can learn about the different bones in the body, you can see a cross section of a bone and also how different joints move. The third layer is the respiratory system. In this layer the player can interact with the lungs and the diaphragm, and they can also see how the body breathes when doing exercise.
The fourth layer is the circulatory system, where the player can see how the heart deals with exercise. They can also view a cross section of the heart and a vein. The fifth layer is the digestive system. In this layer the player can feed the body various types of food and watch what happens throughout the digestive process. The sixth layer is the muscular system where the player can learn how the different muscles flex when the body moves around. There is also a seventh layer which can be brought (see In App purchasing for more detail).
Each layer of this app shows labels for each of the body parts to help the player learn. There is also a ‘dashboard’ section of the app which is restricted to players over the age of 15 (see Online Information and Advertising for more information).
The human body app is an interactive and fascinating way for children to learn about the human body.
